Nanny Questions about Household Expenses

Contributed by Dorothy Popovich

Money is a touchy issue. You don't need to spend a lot of time on this, but a little discussion now will eliminate yet one more area of potential nanny:family conflict.

  • How do you handle common grocery and school materials purchases? Is there a household kitty? Does the family want a receipt? Is the nanny expected to by the milk or poster board and be reimbursed?
  • Is there an 'entertainment' allowance, for things like craft supplies, lunch treat at McDonalds, attending events at the library, community center, etc.?
  • Am I expected to use my automobile for driving the children? How will mileage be reimbursed? What about additional insurance coverage?
  • If I am using your automobile to drive the children, how do we handle gasoline and maintenance?

This list is a work in progress. Any suggestions are appreciated, please send them to me via this website.
